New Delhi: At a time when the word 'beef' has polarised public opinion and politicians have utilised every opportunity to use the divide for political gains, the Kerala House in Delhi has shown the way.
'Beef' was off the menu at the Kerala House canteen ever since a controversy broke out over an 'raid' by Delhi Police over alleged sale of cow meat.
The item is back on the handwritten menu but as 'meat', the word 'beef' has been dropped.
The new menu mentions meat curry and meat fry with 'buffalo' written in brackets. The other items that find a place on the new menu are chicken biryani, fish fry, fish etc.
Reports said that meat curry and meat fry was sold out in hours of the canteen opening for lunch.
Interestingly, the older menu - also hand written – had 'beef fry' written in Malayalam while all other items were mentioned in English.
Meanwhile, Delhi police has detained Hindu Sena Chief Vishnu Gupta for allegedly giving wrong information to the police that cow meat was being served at Kerala house.
